  • Patent number: 11816018
    Abstract: Systems and methods for formal verification of programs. The systems and methods provide a new game-theoretical, strategy-based compositional semantic model for concurrency, a set of formal linking theorems for composing multithreaded and multicore concurrent layers, and a compiler that supports certified thread-safe compilation and linking. Verification of an overlay interface can include determining an intermediate strategy for a primitive operation running on an underlay interface and refining that intermediate strategy to a strategy running on the overlay interface by applying a vertical and a horizontal composition rule. The refined strategy can then be composed with compatible strategies running on the overlay interface according to a parallel composition rule. Strategies may be compatible when rely conditions imposed by each strategy satisfy guarantees provided by the other strategies. The system and method of formal verification can be applied to formal verification of smart contracts.

  • Patent number: 9500629
    Abstract: Before executing a search for optimal correspondence relationship with a coarse-to-fine DP (dynamic programming) algorithm using time information of peaks appearing in a chromatogram as input data, a simplified linear correction is executed based on detection of start point and end point of the section in which the peaks are present. It is sufficient to correct only nonlinear time deviations in coarse-to-fine DP, and the space to be searched is thus narrowed down. In addition, in coarse stage DP, the number of pieces of data to be processed is reduced by selecting peaks based on peak intensity. Between coarse stage DP and fine stage DP, local inappropriate matching is eliminated by performing filtering processing in accordance with trend of time deviations over the entire chromatogram. The space to be searched in fine stage DP becomes narrow, which reduces the number of candidates to be searched and shortens the calculation time.

  • Patent number: 9454450
    Abstract: A first network connection is identified between a first software component and a second software component. First data is received from the first software component identifying an amount of data sent over the first network connection. Second data is also received, from the second software component, that identifies the amount of data sent over the first network connection. Further, a particular transaction fragment involving the first and second software components over the first network connection is determined from the received first and second data. In some aspects, the particular transaction fragment can be used in the analysis of a transaction including the particular transaction fragment.

  • Patent number: 9245362
    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed for visually displaying data points using charts on a display screen with limited display area. A fish-eye distortion region allows presentation of detailed information for some data points compared to other data points that are displayed. The chart can be moved relative to the distortion region thereby changing the data points displayed within the fish-eye that present additional information. The relative movement between the chart and the distortion region is triggered by different kinds of inputs from the user including, tilting of the device, swiping with a pointing device and selecting a particular data point.

  • Patent number: 9001213
    Abstract: A video signal waveform monitor is shown, which receives an input video signal composed of video lines. A video signal digitizer samples the input video signal at video sample points to generate a sequence of video pixel data, which is written into an acquisition framestore is organized into a video pixel array so as to represent a raster of the input video signal. A level analyzer reads the video pixel data row-by-row from segments of the video pixel array and increments video level data at addresses in cache memory in response to the serially-read video pixel data. This generates a sequence of video level data, which is written into an output framestore and which represents the level of the waveform of the input video signal. The segments of the video pixel array comprise at least one and less than all of the columns in the video pixel array.
